Well, I have been a bad, little blogger! I have been keeping up with the quilting though, just not as much as I would like.
The main reason for my lack of “blog” is that I started grad school in January. The process started in October and I have been solely focused on applications, papers and qualifying exams. I am now officially a credential student working towards a Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential!
My first semester was action packed and a big wake-up call about what the next year is going to look like. Between school, work and classroom observations, I barely had time for anything, let alone quilting! Yet, I managed to squeeze in a few hours of work here and there.
The good news is that I will have some breathing space this summer. I have about 3 and 1/2 weeks before school starts up again, and currently I am not working. I had to quit my job to accommodate school, so now I am looking for a restaurant-based job that will offer me more flexibility.
With my newly discovered free time, I decided to take a class on applique and had a wonderful time! This class offered an easier type of applique and here is the not-quite-finished piece I made:
I am also busy working away at my 1930’s Hexagon Quilt. I am hoping to get a lot of sewing done in the next month, so stay tuned!
